Court Rules Egypt's Parliament Illegal

Egypt's top court has ruled that the country's Islamist-dominated upper house of parliament was illegally elected. However, the court says the body will not be dissolved until a new parliament is chosen.

The ruling came Sunday. No date has been set for the new elections, but Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi had previously said they could begin in October.
